~Sweet Awards~

Good Mornings,
I tried for hours last night to post pictures but blogger wouldn't let me so I had to let it go till this morning. I was so surprised and yes, honored to recieve this award from Tammy and Leslie, it is the Arte Y Pico award and I'm happy to know that prim lovers and others too like and visit my blog. I'm so glad I started this blog I have met so many wonderful ladies this way and I always do look forward to posting and reading other's blogs and seeing what they are up to:)
I met Tammy on the CS forum and liked her right away there was such a connection there for me and Leslie, I think I found her blog from Robin's at Bird in the Hand and I'm so glad I did because she is just great always helping me with this darn computer blogger stuff:) Hopefully I won't have to bother her to many more times!

Ok, here are the rules and remember if you already have the award just accept and that's all you have to do!
1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogging community, no matter what language.

2. Each award has to have the name of the author and a link to his/her blog to be visited by everyone.

3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that presented her/him with the award.

4.The award winner and one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5. To show these rules.

I thought I'd show a couple pics of where my DH and I usually end up on the weekends, it's just down from our home but yet it is like a mini vacation at times! We were there last Sunday until the storm came!

We just put our boat in yesterday, with all the storms and rain we have been having the river is still brown looking. We will spend the 4th here then go on our boats to watch the fireworks along the river.

Well, I better get a move on I have to watch the girls today!


  1. How nice to have a getaway close to home. I haven't been on a boat since I was 12 or 13 and learning to water ski at my friends summer cottage. That was over 30 years ago!
    The first picture of the boats lined up along the dock is a great shot.

    Thank you for the kind words and passing along the award. :)

    Have a great day with the kids.

  2. Oh my word... Thank you so much for the award. I really appreciate knowing you like my blog since I am still so new at this.

    Oh that marina looks so cool with that bridge. We have fireworks in our town that people come from all over to watch, but ours will be on July 5th this year.


  3. What a great place to visit on the weekends! And so much fun to have a boat, I'm sure. :) I bet it's really pretty on the 4th! Congrats on your award! I just love your blog!
